SUNNY FEW DAYS

Strong area of high pressure builds for the rest of the week resulting in plentiful sunshine.  Clouds clear the area this evening and threat for showers has ended. In fact, we are dry the rest of the week.  Temperatures in the 50s this evening, drop to the lower 40s, then overnight, continue to fall into the 30s. It is a chilly start to Thursday.  However, much warmer air arrives boosting temperatures to the lower and middle 60s both Thursday and Friday.  Some areas could come close to 70 degrees on Friday!

WEEKEND OUTLOOK

We begin the weekend dry and mild.  Temperatures climb to the lower and middle 60s again under plenty of sunshine initially.  Clouds return quickly filtering the sun Saturday.   Our next system is packing a punch.  Showers move in during the evening.  5-day-wind-forecastSnowflakes may mix in overnight as temperatures take a dive.  There is no concern for any sticking snow as the ground is too warm with the recent mild temperatures.  With that said, temperatures do drop 20 degrees or more by Sunday as highs only climb to the lower 40s, which is more November like. Increasing winds add to the cold and miserable day.  A few rain and snow showers are possible through the day too.  Expect plenty of dry hours if you plan on heading out but dress in layers.

It’s another cloudy and cold day Monday.  A few flurries can’t be ruled out.  Winds are still breezy with highs remaining in the 40s.  Tuesday is dry but chilly. Morning lows are cold in the middle 20s. Highs stay in the 40s another day.

The biggest travel day of the year and it looks pretty decent across the east coast.  Clouds will increase with only a small shower chance.  Highs near 50 degrees.  Rain chances for the area return on Thanksgiving Day as our next system comes through.  If you are traveling across the U.S., check out the forecast below.  To keep updated on your local forecast head to fox43.com/weather.
